Janet Kay to do book signing at Book Expo America, New York City
Wisconsin author Janet Kay will be promoting her debut novel, WATERS OF THE DANCING SKY, at a book signing event on May 24, 2011 in New York City.
Kay will sign books from 1 - 2 p.m. on Tuesday, May 24, at Llumina Press booth # 3617.
Waters of the Dancing Sky is an inspirational love story/wilderness adventure with some paranormal elements. It is set on Rainy Lake in the Voyageur's National Park area along the Minnesota/Ontario international border.
Thornton Wilder once wrote, "There is a land of the living and a land of the dead, and the bridge is love - the only survival, the only meaning."
Sometimes you must tiptoe across that bridge linking this world with the next. Sometimes it is the only way to put the twisted pieces of one's life back together again.
Beth Calhoun is a middle-aged woman haunted by a tragic past - the drowning of her young mother, the shame of having no father. Escaping from an abusive marriage, she retreats to her family's wilderness island home on Rainy Lake. Here she embarks upon a journey of self-discovery that flows through a series of wilderness adventures, past and present. As she delves into her mother's old diaries, she discovers long-held family secrets including the identity of her mysterious father. Spirits of the past emerge as she struggles through a web of emotions and shifting relationships. Can she forgive and put the past behind her? Can she learn to trust and to love again?
Kay fell in love with Rainy Lake as she did research for this novel. "Waters" has become a "destination novel" for many readers who are now planning trips to this area. To promote her book, she is sponsoring a contest on her website (http://www.watersofthedancingsky.com.) Prizes include gift certificates to Voyageur's National Park, Kettle Falls Hotel, and The Thunderbird Lodge - all places where scenes in this novel take place.
